Begin Assessment

Prior to the procedure, patients receive a sedative intravenously (through the vein) that makes them feel drowsy and relaxed. During the procedure, the physician will use an endoscope – a thin flexible tube – to pass into the digestive tract. The endoscope has a light and a camera, which produces a color image of the inside of the digestive tract or the lungs.

The St. Francis Endoscopy Department team treats a variety of disorders, including ulcers, hiatal hernia, reflux syndrome and other upper GI diseases. We may also provide treatment for rectal bleeding, hemorrhoids, colon polyps, diverticulitis and any lower intestinal disease. Additionally, care is provided to patients with obstructive biliary or pancreatic disease, lung disorders and/or foreign body removal.
